Abstract

Iowa produces 29.6 million markets pigs per year, representing 29% of USA swine production. Denmark produces 25.2 million pigs per year and is a major component of the European pork industry and worldwide markets. Both have competitive advantages in a global pork industry. Through available data and personal experience a reflection is made on the similarities and differences between these two distinct pig producing regions.
